Sam was a man wise beyond his years. I’ve known him for over 10 years, but I only started getting close to him a few years ago. I began playing Dungeons and Dragons with him during the Summer of 2016. These past few years were filled with the laughter and smiles that Sam brought to our faces. Whether it have been at the table playing Dungeons and Dragons, or one of our get-togethers outside of the game, he knew how to put a smile on everyone’s faces. He lives on in our hearts. Whether he plays as Volar, Lathlor, Keth, or any character he’s played throughout the years, he will always have a seat reserved for him.
